Behind the Scenes: Creating a Fashion Portrait
To create this fashion portrait we used a 3 light setup and shot behind a pane of glass. To add a bit of texture and interest to the glass we added baby oil (thicker than water) and lit it from behind.
We used a long shutter speed to capture the movement of the model and modeling lights in combination with strobes. This simple light setup can be done by anyone and setup in less than 20 minutes!
The key to creating an image like this is to use a slow shutter speed combined with modeling lights and strobes. Our exposure for this image is 1.3sec f/5.6 ISO 50.
